How to prevent users accepting user story until all linked sub tasks are accepted?


We have a requirement where we would like to allow users to accept user story only when all sub-tasks linked to the user story are accepted.

Additionally, after the above condition is met, if someone reopens the sub-task taking it to 'In progress state', we would like to move back the user story also to 'In Progress' state.

Can some one suggest the possible solution ? Thanks !

In the workflow you could create a Condition to hide a transition. 

There are multiple plugins that can do that, But we use JMWE

Once that is in place you could create some automation with Automation Lite for JIRA or Automation for JIRA. This plugin is very intuitive and has a lot of functionality. 

Should work like a charm.
